YOUTH FOOTBALL

Tackle Football

Our youth tackle football division begins to introduce friendly competition while still focusing on game play time equality. They will have fun learning the fundamentals of play including intermediate skills, game rules, teamwork, technique, good sportsmanship, and more.

Flag Football

The youth flag football league is designed to provide a fun, learning experience for participants without a high level of competition. No league standings or score will be kept and no trophies will be awarded. Teams are formed randomly by school and residence.

Quality Coaching Staff

This league is made possible by volunteer coaching staff. Each coach and assistant coach abide by the YMCA football manual and understand that "Everyone Plays, Everyone Wins".

Lifetime Lessons

By encouraging fun with levels of friendly competition, our football program teaches good sportsmanship, social and communication skills, teamwork, and more.
